At the age of 90 German nurseryman Ernst Pagel took on the breeding of new Achilleas. Criss and I visited the RHS Wisley Gardens 15 years ago at the time of the Achillea trials and it was Pagel’s yarrows which impressed us the most. This is one which we imported a few years ago. It makes self supporting 90cm tall stems with flat heads of peach pink flowers which quickly age to rusty mustard lemon. A hardy plant for a sunny spot.
